Atropos (ePub) | Poetry & Poetry Anthologies
Hendrik J Botha
Like the thread of life held in the hands of Zeus’s daughter Atropos, this debut poetry collection spans poems about childhood memories to romantic experiences and the medical profession, and ends where the thread is cut – poems about mortality and loss.
The medical sphere provides rich subject matter for poems about everything from anesthesia to organ transplants.
The poems in Atropos are sharp observations of the natural and human condition, characterised by clever interaction between meaning and sound.
“There is no doubt about the high standard of this collection . . .” – Henning Snyman
